About Us


The Kaweah Delta Hospital Foundation was formed in 1979 as a not-for-profit corporation organized to meet the philanthropic needs of Kaweah Delta Health Care District.  The purpose of the Foundation is to encourage, receive, administer, and disburse funds.  Each year, the Foundation receives grants, charitable donations and bequests, which provide new equipment, expansion and renovation of hospital facilities and support for quality health care services.  The Foundation is governed by a volunteer board, which serves without compensation.

Since the Foundation was established, volunteers have raised more that $55 million.  Below is a list of a few of the recent projects that benefited from these gifts:

  • Helipad
  • daVinci Surgical Robot
  • Acequia Wing
  • Breast Center
  • Labor and Delivery Unit

  • Annual and Capital Campaigns
  • Annual Golf Classic
  • Direct Donations
  • Grants from companies and foundations
  • Honorarium and Memorial contributions
  • Payroll deductions from employees
  • Speedy Recovery Program
